A tasty fresh take on pizza, pasta

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - There was a little extra excitement in the air at Wolfgang Puck Pizza Bar Friday night.  The chef known around the world was in his own Charlotte kitchen.

Puck visited the restaurant for a book signing and patrons tell us he stayed into the evening to check on operations in the kitchen.

Open since spring, the upscale casual restaurant is located in Phillips Place in Charlotte's South Park neighborhood.

Executive Chef Scott Wallen visited WBTV News Saturday Morning to whip up some pizza and pasta in Puck's signature style.
